New York Times: Germany Should Close Borders, Conduct Mass Deportations, AND Merkel Must Resign
    On New Year's Eve, in the shadow of Cologne's cathedral, crowds of North African and Middle Eastern men accosted women out for the night's festivities. They surrounded them, groped them, robbed them. Two women were reportedly raped.
    Though there were similar incidents from Hamburg to Helsinki, the authorities at first played down the assaults, lest they prove inconvenient for Angela Merkel's policy of mass asylum for refugees.
    That delay has now cost Cologne's police chief his job. But the German government still seems more concerned about policing restless natives --- most recently through a deal with Facebook and Google to restrict anti-immigrant postings --- than with policing migration. Just last week Merkel rejected a proposal to cap refugee admissions (which topped one million last year) at 200,000 in 2016. [...]
    That means closing Germany's borders to new arrivals for the time being. It means beginning an orderly deportation process for able-bodied young men. It means giving up the fond illusion that Germany's past sins can be absolved with a reckless humanitarianism in the present.
    It means that Angela Merkel must go --- so that her country, and the continent it bestrides, can avoid paying too high a price for her high-minded folly.
